    I mean, if I had any freeze code it would say in the same place as the refund code right. I have red through everything and did not find anything that seem to indicate I would not get it or it froze.

    So where is the procssing date on the transcripts

    #4167026 Reply


    I ordered my transcripts and received it in the mail today but it does t show a cycle date. The letter with it says in this letter we will report the status of the request we received. The request we received. We enclose the transcript for transcripts that you requested on said date. A tax return transcript is generally available for the current processing year and for three years prior. It contains most of the information from your original return, along with information from the forms and at requested on said date. A tax return transcript is generally available for the current processing year and for three years prior. It contains most of the information from your original return, along with information from the forms and schedules you filed with it. The transcript however does not contain changes made to the return by either you or us, after you file the return. Sex changes could include your filing an amended return, and corrections to be made to the return because we discovered a map mistake, or a payment credited after you file the return. The transcript also does not show refunds. Information for current tax years is available immediately on our computer systems, delivery times to you depends on how you submit your request and then delivery method used to like to receive the information.

    @wow just child tax credit. No eic or actc

    #4166986 Reply


    @Jillian: The 846 is how the refund is released. No one on PATH has it at this time and I don’t really expect that to happen until the CAN be release (at least 2/15).

    @shinesta: Nope. No IRS/tax professionals here. Just using information provided by the IRS as well as experiences from over the years.

    Does someone who is giving these replies work at irs? Or is everyone just giving input? Or is somebody a tax preparer?

    #4166964 Reply


    I have a cycle date of 20170605…and my refund was deposited a couple hours ago! (netspend) Netspend deposits funds as soon as they are received. I’m thinking traditional banks will show up Monday or Tuesday…

    #4166963 Reply


    @ Mari did you claim any credits?!?

    #4166962 Reply



    Thank you for being so helpful! Sadly, I merely have a list of codes that itemize each particular credit/refund. I’m wondering why no 846, aside from the obvious big update this evening and the PATH situation. Is there anyone with an 846 or DDD with these credits I wonder?

    #4166892 Reply

    Help please

    My cycle is 20170405 and I claimed EIC and child credit. Should I expect DDD on 2/15???

    #4166864 Reply


    @Question & Theory: I guess I don’t really understand what you are asking. The DDD for 2/15 has a cycle date of 20170605 WITH the 846 refund release code also on the transcript (and no refund freeze/hold codes). Here is how it is figured out:

    #4166828 Reply


    UPDATE: I was checking my bank account through the phone app and my bank shows me scheduled transactions.

    I saw my federal tax returned scheduled to be deposited 2/15/2017!

    My cycle code is 0605.

    #4166841 Reply


    The cycle date ONLY works with 846 refund release code. Those delayed by PATH do not have that and cannot use their cycle date to determine DDD.

    @Ryan Williams Since you have the 846 (assuming you don’t have any other freeze codes) your DDD will be 2/15- Congrats!!

    #4166833 Reply


    Why is my comment awaiting moderation?

    Anywho – checked scheduled transactions on my bank app. I’m getting my refund on 2/15. Cycle code 0605

    #4166830 Reply


    The cycle codes mean NOTHING if you have the EIC or ACTC.

    Just got my transcripts in the mail a few moments ago. My cycle is 20170505 which would give me a date of 2/2 (DDD of 2/8).

    The transcripts list 2/20/2017 as the “processing date” and leaves me with a prospective DDD of 2/24

    Not a happy camper to wait a month for money due to me. Filed/accepted 1/26

    Question & Theory

    So looking over this year… [#date, day of the week]
    1 wed ddd for 3 fri
    2 thur ddd for 6 mon
    3 fri ddd for 8 wed

    8 wed ddd for 10 fri
    9 thur ddd for 13 mon

    Did today spit out a ddd for 14 tue?
    Will tomorrow be a dd for 15 wed?

    If yes the next set of ddd should drop on 15 wed for 17 fri. And continue the pattern of wed-sat ddds and dd on fri-wed.

    Ok, here is a question. My Cycle code is 20170605

    I did get the 846 code, but the date next to the code says 02/27/17. But that also says that is the date the return was filed, which is not the case since I filed and was accepted on 1/31st. So should I still expect the refund on the 15th or does that date above inform the refund date,

    #4166730 Reply


    I filed 1/20 got accepted 1/23
    Path act message 1/26
    Ordered transcripts 2/4
    Cycle code 20170405
    Processing date 02/13
    I really don’t what all these means lol hope it means the 15th or 16th

    #4166727 Reply


    OK quick question. My cycle code is 20170405 and a processing date of 02/13/2017
    I have EIC and ACTC so what would my deposit date be???

    #4166694 Reply


    @Jillian: It would be below the cycle date to the left of the page. It should say Code – Explanation of Transaction above any codes you have listed.

    #4166691 Reply


    @kimikaze I am able to view my return transcript and see a cycle code (20170605) but do not see an 846 code… where would that be listed within the document?

    #4166680 Reply


    @Kristen: Since you have the 846 refund release code-
    20170605 = 2/9/17 + 4 business days = 2/15/17 (which will your DDD). You can verify this tomorrow when WMR updates.

    #4166669 Reply


    Im so confused!

    My cycles says 20170605

    i have code 846: says refund issued 2-27-2017

    Will it be delayed that long? I dont have EIC or ACTC

    #4166640 Reply


    Very nice, thanks. Because mama needs a new pair of shoes…lol.

    #4166628 Reply


    @MinaMina: If you have 846 then you have to add 4 business dates to the cycle date. Your DDD will be for 2/15. WMR should update tomorrow morning showing that :)

    #4166592 Reply


    Also my sons code was 20170402 and he has a ddd of the 13th which lines up with what I’m saying.

    #4166605 Reply


    @Della: The source is there for you to check. If your son had a cycle date of 20170402 with the 846 code (with no freeze codes) then his DDD would have been on 1/27 which was the very first DD of the year.

    #4166601 Reply


    No freezes or anything, either. And I have netspend, so if the money was released it would be in my account by now

    #4166597 Reply


    The 846 message is there. Is says 846 Refund Issued 02-27-2017

    #4166593 Reply


    @MinaMina: That is because your refund was not released (846). Please see the note attached at the top.

    #4166589 Reply


    Let me rephrase… The dates start from the opening of filing season. I could always be wrong however, I have never had a cycle code not post to that day using that method. Anyone else know? I’m dang near posative.

    #4166582 Reply


    My cycle date is 20170605…and no money today…lol. Thanks though

    #4166579 Reply


    @Della: The weeks are based off the Julian calendar and start at the beginning of the year (not from when you filed). This information comes directly from the IRS manual which can be found right on their website.
    IRS Manual
    Part 3. Submission Processing
    Chapter 30. Work Planning and Control
    Section 123. Processing Timeliness: Cycles, Criteria and Critical Dates
    IMF Daily Processing (updated 01-01-2017)

    #4166571 Reply


    This is not accurate information. The codes start from the day of filing. So… 20170404 is the 4th week after the 23rd and the 4th day so is actually 2/15/2017. It’s always been the number of weeks after filing. I don’t know if this will pan out like years prior. I have never had a cycle code be wrong though.

    #4166567 Reply


    @james: So long as the 846 Refund Release code is present. If you fall under PATH or have a freeze code then, no.

    #4166564 Reply


    @kimikaze thanks. Ugh I feel like I have been waiting forever. Hoping we get an update next week to WMR!

    #4166559 Reply


    So am I correct if the cycle date on the return transcript is 20170605, we should have a deposit around Wednesday?

    #4166532 Reply

    Tax Payer

    I filed w/TT on 1/23 was accepted same day. Got 4883 letter on 2/6 , verified my identity on 2/7. I was told my IRS agent that it would take 9 wks to complete processing. I was finally able to get my transcripts today ! Cycle date of 20170605. I am hoping this is a step in the right direction straight to my bank account finally ! Is this good news ? Someone please give me insight.


    #4166512 Reply


    @BDLotsoM: The cycle date code is when you posted to the master file (which is it’s original purpose). The processing date does not correlate with a DDD. Unfortunately, all of us on PATH will need to wait until the refund is released (846) and update on WMR after 2/15.

    #4166501 Reply


    So if my cycle is 20170405 but i’m stuck in this path junk, what does this mean for my code? It says the processing date is Feb 13. Not sure if that’s relevant.

    #4166488 Reply


    Your right the 846 code was not on there. So this means transcripts are not good this year with people with the PATH message. That’s means I have to wait till the 15/16 for an update

    #4166474 Reply


    @John: The 2/20 is the processing. With PATH the cycle date cannot help because a refund has not been issued yet (846 code).

    #4166469 Reply


    My cycle date is 20170502 from my transcript and the date on there is 2/20/17

    Very helpful :)

    @Daniellek: Please see the note at the top.

    #4166369 Reply


    This is not true
    People with tax act
    Won’t get there’s till the 15
    My code was 0404

    #4166335 Reply


    Thank you, this is very helpful and confirms my thinking that the processing date given on the transcript is not the same as the actual DD date.
